From the beginning, Deacon Media was and is all about Everything Entertainment. So …
The Deacon in the City of Music:
What I would like to do, moving forward, is conduct a series of interviews with local talent for this blog. These interviews would be published on a set day either once a week, bi-weekly, or monthly. I would like to showcase some of their music, talk about who they are, what inspires them, and where they see themselves as they move forward. This would be step one, since my mobility is still limited, and it would be something I can still do from behind the keyboard.
Step two is to expand out into the city and talk more about the venues and the city itself as it pertains to music and entertainment. Above is the logo everyone seems to have adopted to show the world that Hamilton is essentially the Music City of Canada. That is in my opinion and that of many, but may be disputed at any given time. During this step, once my ability to get out and about improves, I would like to explain and hopefully prove this opinion.
Step three would be to delve back into the PodCast world, perhaps with a monthly Vlog? I had a brief foray into this back in the days of Boon’s House with the Deacon Blues Approved segment on Blues Blast which aired on Mohawk Radio. It was brief and short-lived as my time was limited, as was my equipment and experience.
So, this outlines my… goals… moving forward. I may not get to all three steps of this plan as quickly as I like, but it will remain my target.
Back to Step One :
All that being said, it would be nice to get some input. This can be from venues, city officials, artists, fans, etc. Who should I ask to do a small interview piece as I expand this step? Should it be you?
Please reach out via email or facebook.
Music Mondays start on May 6th, with Bonnie Hamilton. Maybe this would be a good start? Maybe my dear friend Chad Pilon, who I know will be performing many time over the summer and is involved in a special charity dear to my heart as well?
